Inside the wick you’ll find a brownish hard pit. This pit has a bit of the shape of a broad bean.
Moisten the soil in the flowerpot with a plant sprayer.
Then place the pit in the middle of the pot, and gently push the pit on. It is important to place the light ‘eye’ upwards. This is where the leaf finally comes out.
Then place a plastic cover foil over the flowerpot with wick. In this way you keep the environment in front of the pit constantly moist. Ideal for a mango to grow up in!
Place the flowerpot in a place in the half shade. If you have the possibilities, a mango grows best in a warm environment.
After about 2 to 3 weeks the first leaves will appear.
Tip! A mango is a tropical plant. As soon as the plant has developed enough leaves, and therefore also enough roots, you can let it get used to sunlight more and more. Eventually, the mango plant may be placed in a spot with direct sunlight. But, the plant has to be strong enough for that.
